with this. the first family is on vacation in martha's vineyard. this is their fourth vacation trip to the island. they skipped last year in the midst of the 2012 campaign. the president, he hit the links with the press pool watching both yesterday and today. i notice that this morning drudge was leading with a story that talked about the arrival of bo, the family dog via an osprey helicopter, the number of hotel rooms needed for secret service, and the presence of a mesh bag filled with basketballs in the luggage. criticizing a president's vacation, especially this president's vacation has become a rite of summer. to learn more of the facts, today i chatted with mark knoller. he is the white house correspondent for cbs news, but he is more than that. he is the go-to statistician for presidential behavior, and he often shares his data with colleagues, sometimes with the presidents themselves. he maintains lists of literally everything the commander in chief does, from bill signings to pardons, vetoes, air force one flights, marine one trips and vacation destinations, even church att
president obama took time from his vacation on martha's vineyard to address the crisis. >> while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning we notified the egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. >> but is the president doing enough? state department spokes woman jen saki is "outfront." jen, thanks for taking the time. >> my pleasure. >> more than 500 people have been killed in the past day alone, the united states, of course, giving egypt about $1.3 billion in military aid and a lot of critics say at the least you got to cut off that aid. why not just do it? >> well, erin, first let me say, as the president said, as the secretary said yesterday, the events that have happened the last two days are deplorable, horrific, there aren't enough adjectives to come up with to describe them. our relationship with egypt, though, is not only complicated, it is a
is engaging. he came out during his vacation on martha's vineyard, spoke on thursday. this is part of what he said. >> we've sustained our commitment to egypt and its people, but while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. >> so, ratchets up the pressure, senator ayotte, but is the president more or less on the sidelines or do you think he's been doing the right thing? >> well, i agreed with his suspension of the military exercise, obviously his condemnation of the violence, but i think he fell short when he really didn't come out and call out the real question on the suspension of aid, because that is the real influence that we have with egypt. so, i thought that he could have been stronger on that coming very clearly against the violence and saying we're going to suspend aid until you restore democracy. >> so, the question for me, senator reed, is what is it that the united states really wants to stand up for right now? i go back to the mubarak, at
at martha's vineyard where the president is vacationing. why is the limit on out-of-pocket expenses being delayed, wendell? >> reporter: well, jon, it turns out some insurers and employers use separate companies to administer medical coverage and drug benefit, and their compute pers don't necessarily talk to each other. since different companies have different limits on out of pocket costs, they need more time to figure out a way to keep track of all the out of pocket costs people are incurring. the result is that some people with complex chronic medical conditions like multiple sclerosis will pay more than they would have if the cap was in place. this delay on imposing the limit on out of pocket costs was approved in february but buried in bureaucratic language on the labor department's web site, and no one noticed it until now, jon. jon: so what are republicans saying about all this? >> reporter: well some republicans say this is proof the affordable care act is too complicated. they point to democratic senator max baucus' warning that it's going to be a train wreck to implement. but re
is vacationing on martha's vineyard. dan, what else did the president have to say about egypt? >> reporter: wolf, the president said the cycle of violence needs to stop. he condemned the actions of the military government and announced the u.s. is pulling out of joint exercises, a move that a senior administration official had been discussed as early as june but that the president made up his mind just last night. after a telephone briefing with his national security team on the escalating violence in egypt, president obama emerged from vacation mode in an effort to jolt that country's interim military government off what he called a dangerous path. >> the egyptian people deserve people. >> reporter: cancelling bright star, a long time joint biannual military exercise set for next month. >> our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. >> reporter: this stepped up pressure comes amid calls to suspend the $1.3 billion in annual u.s. military aid to egypt, something that would be virtually automatic if the whit
none other than nsa leaker edward snowden. white house correspondent dan lothian is live from martha's vineyard this morning. dan, sounds like there are more big questions for the administration today. >> reporter: that's right, certainly more big questions, kate. you know "the washington post" revealing in this report that the lechl of detail and analysis they uncovered is usually more than typically shared with member of congress or the fisa court that oversees the nation's surveillance programs. >> a general impression has i think taken hold not only among the american public but also around the world that somehow we're out there willy-nilly. >> reporter: that was president obama just days ago assuring the american public that the national security agency was not breaching the trust of its citizens. but a new report out today by "the washington post" may raise new concerns. after combing through the trove of documents leaked by former nsa analyst edward snowden "the post" reports the nsa has broken privacy rules thousands of times each year since 2008.
